Charlie Sheen ... Here

Comes the 'Idol' Judge?

We're pretty sure it started as a joke ... but now that Charlie Sheen seems into it -- could he be the next "American Idol" judge? We think it's not the worst idea ever.

Plus, Daniel Tosh apologizes for spewing rape jokes at a female heckler during a stand-up gig! Did Tosh cross the line, was she wrong to heckle him ... or is this all par for the course in comedy? 

Also ... video of "Iron Chef" Cat Cora going on a bizarre anti-nerd rant after her DUI crash -- and how she ended up taking the sexiest mug shot we've ever seen.

(0:00) Charlie Sheen would love to be a judge on "American Idol" -- if they'll meet his list of demands ... which aren't nearly as crazy as they seem. Plus, Charlie made an awesome speech at Slash's Hollywood Walk of Fame presentation ... bashing Axl Rose in the process.
(6:34) Daniel Tosh catches fire for directing a rape joke at a woman at one of his shows -- since he's a comedian ... did he really have to apologize?
(10:30) "Iron Chef" Cat Cora gets busted for DUI after allegedly bumping another car -- and the people she accidentally bumped video taped her drunken rant at them.
(15:40) Britney Spears walks off the set of "X Factor" after a contestant butchers her song -- is it all just a setup or was she really pissed off?
(20:20) Travis Barker is still so afraid of flying after his .
(24:00) Vera Wang separates from her husband -- are her millions in jeopardy?
(31:00) Sophia Vergara -- engaged or not engaged?
(33:30) Dan and Lauran Dotson from "Storage Wars" call in -- they tell us how some hackers nearly took them for everything they had ... if not for one huge mistake.
(36:00) Steve Nash crushes his fans in Phoenix by joining the Lakers -- but he's still no LeBron James.
(39:00) USA's new Olympic uniforms are ... well ... they involve berets if that tells you anything.
(38:00) Peyton Manning just locked down a sick mansion in Denver -- and we have photos of it.
(40:10) We take your calls ... plus the best video you'll see all days ... Charles injuring himself right before TMZ Live! Classic.

Easy...do you get in a car with Lindsey Lohan or do you get in a car with someone who has never had an acciden? Same concept.

People should start counting how often they make fat jokes on here. Any time they are talking about a person who is heavy...you know a weight joke is coming. I think it's because Harvey has such a complex about how tiny and short he is, but you'd think that would make him cooler and lay off the junior high jokes.

Don't know if they have noticed, but the mic on the guy sitting behind them, is on.
In the breaks, if you turn up the volume, you can hear them talking about things.

You at TMZ think Charlie the a**hole becomming an Idol judge is not the worst idea ever??? Oh, well as long as YOU think so then by all means - lets give the alcoholic, drug addict the job!! Its not bad enough that we have to PAY for the poor-ass quality of the shows on TV now . . . . . lets really ad insult to injury and put this friggin loser Charlie on a show so we have to look at that train wreck. Do you really think Charlie Sheens opinion means diddly squat to anybody???? YOU REALLY DO SUCK TMZ, you Tom Cruise/scientology loving sorry azz excuses for reporters. Your website sucks too.

Her is my take on what should happen on Idol ...
Lopez and Tyler need to move on ... I would keep Randy and add Charlie Sheen and Fergie. If you bring in Miley I'm gone.

Why are the breaks so long? This isn't a live show for TV.

In addition to Charlie, they mentioned Jerry Lewis as a candidate...and TMZ "thinks" it was a joke. Fools.

Of course Charlie is into it--his career is in the crapper. This has to be pretty exciting for him! I think Jerry Lewis stands a better chance of making it to the judges table.
